Default Re: What Windows 7 antivirus are you guys using?

These days most anti virus program are about equal in keeping the computer safe. Any test will show them all neck and neck for the most part. It comes down more to features and interface, what suits the user the best. Personally, I like a lot of information at my disposal. When something is caught, I like the program to be able to show me information on it, where it's located so I can make sure it's not a false positive, give me options what I want to do with it so the program doesn't just delete something I want. Some Anti Virus programs do this better (or differently) than others.

I use two other things in addition to my antivirus program, Malwarebytes and Spyware Blaster. With the three of those at my disposal, I'm about as safe as I can get.
